Rob Marshall Shares An Update On The Live-Action ‘The Little Mermaid’

It sounds like Rob Marshall has officially boarded the long in development live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid. While speaking with Entertainment Tonight the director shared some updates on the film. Check out his interview below.

There is speculation that the role of Ariel in the remake was offered to Zendaya, we here have The DisInsider attempted reaching out to her reps but we, unfortunately, heard nothing back. When asked about the rumor during the Smallfoot press tour the actress simply stated: “we will see.” Another rumor we heard but was never confirmed was that music superstar Lady Gaga is high on Disney’s wish list for a role in the film. Most likely the role of Ursula. While we were not able to confirm, we decided to share it as a rumor and nothing more.

Alan Menken and Lin-Manuel Miranda will team up to compose the music for the film, as well as add new songs to the film.

As of right now, there is no release date for the film. We expect to hear more news on this project at Disney’s bi-annual D23 Expo this August.
